ok i've been looking for the answer to this for ages...

how the hell can i sudo on OS X? i can su fine. my /etc/sudoers file is in order... but everytime i use sudo... it prompts for the password. well... that shouldnt happen... so i type in the password and it says it's incorrect?

why can't i sudo?!?? it's driving me crazy. and the user is an admin... so no problem there either.
